Owner description: A unique exhibition based on optical illusion. Witness balls rolling uphill in the antigravity room, visibly grow and shrink in the Ames room and be amazed by our interactive optical illusion exhibits, artwork and sculptures, as well as the hologram gallery!

This is a great value attraction with some intriguing puzzles. Some of them need fixing but overall it's really enjoyable.

My 8 year old daughter and I visited here in January. Living only 15 miles away we have been there previously on a couple of occasions over the years.While my daughter enjoyed the experience and the concept is good, I found some of the exhibits were showing signs of age and some were actually broken. This is a paying attraction,which must have relatively low overheads, as the exhibits are very little changed in 6 years.Yet the owners have failed to provide basic cleaning or maintenence, never mind new exhibits,which is very disappointing.

I went on holiday to Keswick for many years, and always took the opportunity to go into the free bit, which I could spend half an hour in alone playing with the various puzzles. Eventually we did go in and it was great, it offers many unique photo opportunities and has so many things you just dont find elsewhere. The highlight for me was the hologram gallery, which features a large selection of large photographic holograms. Again, these are something you rarely see anywhere, and the quality was quite astounding.
At less than £4 for adults, this is definitely worth the entry fee, although its not an all day attraction, its so different you will get some great memories (and photos!)
